There is a certain type of question I get routinely from those wanting help with their blog:

  • I’m new and just getting started. Can you help me set up a new WordPress blog?
  • Can you tell me how to start over and set up my blog the right way?
  • Can you help me move my content to a new WordPress blog? How would you set it up? 
  • Can I hire you to set up a blog? There are so many opinions out there and you know what you are doing.
  • I want to move from Blogger to WordPress. Can you tell me how to set up WordPress the right way?
  • There’s too much to learn and too many “experts” I don’t trust. Can you help me?

There are lots of variations to the questions but they all are looking for the same thing: for me to set up WordPress correctly, and professionally, based on my years of experience and proven success. 

While I’ve helped a LOT of people for free over the years, there’s just no way I can assist everyone who asks – even if they wanted to pay for the service. Linky Blog is all about helping you be a successful blogger and I don’t really want you to have to pay a bunch of money to an “expert” just to get WordPress set up the way it should be. I would rather have your long-term loyalty and see you invest in the other services/sites/workshops/books I offer. 

I’ve teamed up with our hosting partner to give you a blog for free…

Why? Because I hope it will make you loyal to Linky Blog (and myself) long term.  It’s that simple. I help you create a successful blog. You help me succeed at my business. I get tired of a lot of blogging experts out there who pretend like they are only here to help you; they don’t mention they are doing it because it results in their own personal success. That’s nonsense. I want to help you because helping you is truly a reward, and helps me too. By helping you, I hope to earn your trust and loyalty, which are the keys to any successful online business.  I’ve arranged this with my long-time hosting partner, Arvixe, to make everything as easy and reliable as possible. They have the Internet’s best blog hosting for less than $4/month. 

So, I’ve come up with a program to give you a free blog.

I will set up and configure a new WordPress blog for you exactly the way I would do it for myself. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

  • The latest version of WordPress, installed, configured and set up the way I would do it if I were creating one for myself!

  • Backup and security features already installed, configured, and ready to use.

  • WordPress settings and configurations already done.

  • Sample categories set up and ready to use.

  • My suggested menu and navigation set up and ready to go.

  • My suggested widgets already installed and configured.

  • Twenty of my favorite themes for you to choose from (most of them would cost you $39 or more); these are full-featured, high-quality themes! You can choose from thousands of others available online.

  • My “must have” plugins, tools and features installed, set up and ready to use: Security, Pinterest, Backups, Duplicate/Clone Posts, Forms, Comments, Web Statistics, Images, Likes, Spelling and Grammar, Sharing, Social Media, Shortcodes, Extra Widgets, SEO, Advanced Editing, Surveys.

  • Thirty-three sample blog posts and ideas to help jump-start your writing!
  • Already activated is my absolute favorite, flexible theme that I think you are going to love!

    • Create beautiful and unique layouts visually, without touching a single line of code. The builder gives anyone the ability to create truly dynamic websites with ease.

    • Eighteen pre-made layouts that allow you to quickly jump-start your design. These are completely customizable and can be used as a great starting point for creating your own designs.

    • Wonderfully responsive no matter how you choose to configure your website. Each and every building block will conform to your visitor’s screen, creating the most intuitive browsing experience.

  • A selection of the pages you need on your blog, created, set up, and ready for you to customize such as a contact form, “New Visitors Start Here,” and About pages.

  • Some fantastic software already installed, set up, and ready to use: image galleries, web calendars, surveys and polls, and a great shopping cart (your hosting has dozens more free to choose from)

Who is this for?

Obviously, if you are just getting started, this is a perfect way to get things going the right way. You’ll have a blog set up in a way that most new bloggers would only dream of (or pay dearly for). If you want a new and improved blog, it is VERY easy to export your existing content and import it to your new blog. Looking to move from Blogger or another platform? There are tutorials all over the Internet on how to move content from other blog platforms to WordPress.  This is every blogger’s chance to get a WordPress blog set up, configured, and feature-loaded the way a true, successful, and long-time blog expert would do it.  Let’s be clear though… it’s your blog at that point. You take over and customize it, create content, and make it successful. I’m just giving you a HUGE jump-start on both time (days of setup if you don’t know what you are doing) and experience (15 years of it!).  New bloggers, wanting-to-improve bloggers, needing-to-start-over bloggers, starting-an-additional-blog bloggers, moving-to-WordPress bloggers…

Now is the time…

If you’ve ever wished for professional help with your blog, from someone with real-world and long-time-proven experience, this is your chance. I have to go in and set everything up for each person who signs up for their free blog, so only time will tell if this is a win/win for both me and each person who gets a free blog.  I get a few bucks from the hosting company over time but that’s not what truly benefits me. Your long-term participation with Linky Blog and my other products/services is what makes this a winner for us both.

At this point, you’re either interested or not, so if you are, you can get your free blog here
